Disabled band reduction scheme
This scheme makes sure disabled people don’t pay more Council Tax if they need:
- a bigger property
- to adapt their home because of their disability
The property must be the main home of at least 1 disabled person. They can be an adult or a child and don’t have to be responsible for paying the Council Tax.
The property must have 1 or more of:
- an extra bathroom, kitchen or other room for the disabled person
- extra space inside the property for using a wheelchair
Other Council Tax reductions
People who are severely mentally impaired and some live-in carers are exempt when working out Council Tax.
You can apply for a Council Tax discount from your local council.
